My Cover:

Fairest Animated Cover

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story—a story that has never been told … until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from WINTER, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.

Why I’m Crushing:

How awesome is this cover??!!  I love love love animated covers!  I already thought it was pretty great when I first saw it, but the animation really puts it over the top.  The way she moves slightly is pretty creepy, especially with that skeletal looking crown.  I also really like the beautiful burning frame and how it says “Queen” like it is showing the destruction to come.  At first, I wanted the cover to match the first 3 with the red and blue, but then I thought about the fact that it is Levana and she is pure evil, so she really doesn’t deserve the same kind of covers as our heroines.  I am so very excited about another Lunar Chronicles book and I can’t wait to read it!  What do you guys think of this cover and the new addition to the Lunar Chronicles?

My Cover:

Plus One Cover

Divided by day and night and on the run from authorities, star-crossed young lovers unearth a sinister conspiracy in this compelling romantic thriller.

Seventeen-year-old Soleil Le Coeur is a Smudge—a night dweller prohibited by law from going out during the day. When she fakes an injury in order to get access to and kidnap her newborn niece—a day dweller, or Ray—she sets in motion a fast-paced adventure that will bring her into conflict with the powerful lawmakers who order her world, and draw her together with the boy she was destined to fall in love with, but who is also a Ray.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day-night divide, Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.

Why I’m Crushing:

This is just such a perfect and beautiful representation of this story!  Both sides are incredibly gorgeous and I love the soft color scheme.  There is a lot of detail that went into this cover and I love love love the night side with the lovely stars.  I also like how the title is the reverse of the night and day.  This story sounds incredible and I really want to read it and I’m glad this gorgeous cover drew me to it!  What do you guys think?  Feel free to share any covers you might be crushing on!
